Left mouse hemi-maxillae as reconstructed by micro- chromatography (micro-CT) of mice from line CC026/TAU of the Collaborative Cross mouse population. Upper frame, entire uninfected left-hemi maxilla. Lower left frame, expanded view of uninfected left hemi-maxilla. Lower right frame, expanded view of post-infection left hemi-maxilla. White, enamel; yellow, dentin and cementum; gray, alveolar bone. Horizontal resorption is measured as the distance from the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ, the line between the yellow and gray colors) to the alveolar bone crest.
